The Minnesota Twins’ first baseman

The Minnesota Twins’ first baseman is Doug M., the best defensive first baseman I have ever seen. Is it possible there is another player who saves more outs at his position than M. has the past couple years? In his first full season with the Twins he won a gold glove for his defensive play, and I believe he had just as good a season in the field this past year, although his offensive production suffered. In the gold glove balloting, he was edged this year by Seattle’s John Olerud: Here’s the report from this morning’s Star Tribune: “Twins: Hunter wins another Gold Glove, but not Mientkiewicz.” Is this some kind of a joke?
